Crochet in TV: Props - "The Big Bang Theory"

So you may think I'm sort of a geek.  But every time I see crochet on television I get a little nuts.  Hubby is a big fan of "The Big Bang Theory", so we are constantly watching back episodes on dvd along along with the new episodes as they come out. The very first time we were allowed in Amy Farrah Fowler's apartment I saw the WONDERFUL Granny Square Afghan that graced the back of her sofa.  So being the geek that I am....I googled it to see if I could get an up close look at it. It's not a full shot.  But maybe you have seen a better picture.  If so please put the link in a comment!! I would LOVE to see more of it!!!

If you are wanting to make your own Granny Square blanket, take a look at my post Granny Stash Busters. There is a pattern for the basic granny square and lots of ideas for assembling. It is also a good way to use up your stash!!!

  1. I've noticed that afghan too. It's fun to see crochet pop up when watching tv. Roseanne Barr had a granny afghan on her couch all the time too

  2. Oh that's why I thought I'd seen that afghan before..of course it was in Roseanne. Not the same but they are very similar to each other.

  3. I like the show and like you get giddy when I see crochet in shows. Silly I know but it is like seeing a long lost friend. Way back when Roseanne Barr had her show there was a blanket on there that looks similar. I didn't even know how to crochet yet but did appreciate even back then.

  4. w are huge Big Bang Theory fans here. I remember when I saw the blanket. I think what makes it pop is the squares being edged in black.
